Freestar, the leading monetisation partner for content publishers, e-commerce sites, and app developers, announced that it has earned another spot on the annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S, for the fourth consecutive year coming in at No. 1824. Its three-year revenue growth rate of 334% allowed the company to remain in the top 2,000 each year after earning the No. 1 ranking in 2019.
Despite the unique macroeconomic conditions, Freestar had another landmark year, expanding its global footprint with the acquisition of Canada-based ad management company Sortable and UK-based AMP monetisation company, Triple13 in late 2021. Freestar also compounded significant organic growth in its customer-base with a client acquisition and strategic direct sales partnership with Chicago-based MPW in the first half of 2022 adding over 500 new websites to its portfolio. Freestar’s growth has continued to expand the company's capabilities and technology further solidifying it as the most holistic solution for digital publisher’s monetisation needs.
“This award is a reflection of our team’s dedication, intellect, and passion for the work that we do every day for our customers,” said Kurt Donnell, president and CEO of Freestar. “Our team continues to blow me away each and every week despite the many curveballs the world continues to throw our way. They continue to engineer world-class monetisation solutions, provide the best customer service in the business, and deliver on our goal of getting 1% better each week.”
Headquartered in Phoenix, AZ, Freestar was No. 59 on the Inc. 5000 list in the state of Arizona and No. 148 in the advertising & marketing category.
